Oh plums I see

PLUMS, oil on canvas, 20" x 24" framed Artist: Rob Wilson (1938 - 2007) Vancouver, BC
Good morning everyone,
Hope everyone is doing well. I am dragging a little. So much to do
and the smoke is at sensitive levels again. I was able to get some
things done outside yesterday but today is going to be some work.
In my header picture is an oil painting of plums and it comes from
The Turner Gallery an Etsy shop the link is below.
On our property there are three plum trees and today I need
to spend some time picking them. It wouldn't be so bad if I
actually liked plums. I just can't let them go to waste so I will
pick them and try and give them away.

25 Wild Blackberry Bush Seeds Grows Into Big Blackberries Healthy
We also have some blackberries growing here but then again
that should be no surprise because blackberries grow wild here.
The beautiful picture of the blackberries come from the Etsy
shop at the link below.
This shop is actually selling blackberry seeds but the picture
of the blackberries is gorgeous. Picking the blackberries is totally
different because I actually like blackberries. I'll tell you a little
secret. When I take the dogs outside I stand by the blackberry
bushes picking and eating a handful or two. Shhh don't tell anyone.
And I wonder why I could use to lose about twenty pounds.
Oh well I love my blackberries. Hopefully tomorrow I can get
a good sunny day to take pictures of my projects and maybe
I can find the right place and lighting to take all my pictures
still working on that issue since we moved.
Please keep the firefighters that are fighting the wildfires in your
prayers.Yesterday a firefighter lost his life here in Oregon. The
bad thing is that we have thunderstorms in affect for the next
few days and with thunderstorms come lightening. Pray that
no more fires start up. It's been one crazy summer weather wise
and not just here but all over our country. We will get through this
God willing.
So until my next post Have A Splendid Day!!!!!

Hi Vel, I love seeing the plums and blackberries. They remind me of Georgia, my original home state. We had them growing wild everywhere too! :-) And I'm sorry to hear about the fires. It must feel like this summer when never end! O_O I'm keeping you in my thoughts. Stay safe.

Thank you Deb. The air quality continues in the sensitive side to unhealthy. I am so far behind in yard work and the lighting in the house right now is horrible because it is almost like rainy days when it's so gloomy. I really need to make a photo box or buy one. Thank you for keeping me and our area in prayers.
